I started playing golf at the age of 3 and I turned professional at 18. I qualified as a PGA Pro at Burford Golf Club, then moved to The Vale Golf Club as Head Assistant. My next post took me back to my home course – Forest Hills, where I was a junior and obtained a scratch handicap at the age of 16 and was off +2 by the time I was 18.
It was nice to return as Head Golf Professional. The desire to teach led me to Brickhampton Court as Head Professional, during my time there I became a County Academy Coach and an Inclusive Coach for Gloucestershire.
Now I’m delighted to be here at Gloucester golf club. I teach everyone from beginner to tour standard, I’m a down to earth coach who believes that simplicity is the key to success.
I turned professional in 2000, having gained a degree at the University of Central Lancashire and have worked as a teaching professional at a variety of venues including Willow Valley Golf Club near Leeds, Bramshaw Golf Club in the New Forest and Hambrook Golf Centre in Bristol.
For the past 15 years I have been working at Hartpury College as a Lecturer and Coach on the BTEC Diploma in Sport (specializing in Golf) programme. I continue to work at Hartpury College, but having spoken to Keith, I was excited at the possibility that I may be able to provide a coaching service to Gloucester Golf Club’s current membership and beyond.
Outside of golf, I live locally (Brockworth) with my wife and 2 children and I enjoy running. I am yet to do my first marathon, but have taken part in about 5 half marathons and a few 10K races. I am looking forward to meeting many of the members.

I write on behalf of the Gloucestershire Captains following our Captains Day held at Gloucester Golf Club. Our association is indebted to you for providing a magnificent golfing experience. From start to finish your professional approach shone through and the day was as perfect as we could have wished for.
I wanted to let you know that the Gloucester Golf Club is an excellent choice for a wake; it’s close to the crematorium, there is a car park and it is a large comfortable room surrounded by greenery.
Thank you Gloucester Golf Club for hosting our Family Christening, we really appreciate all you provided, it was great afternoon and so many people commented on the venue, the use of the TVs for the photos was great idea, a big thank you to you and all your staff
